We are excited to announce that starting March 10, we will be moving to two services. As we've taken a look back over the last several years, we have continued to grow in all areas, especially in our Sunday morning attendance. As a response to this growth, we see huge potential for our church community so we want to begin to make space for others. Our desire to is have space to invite our neighbors, friends and coworkers, families and children, and to have space for more opportunities to serve, and grow deeper. As we do life with others, we want to have a place where we can invite them into community, to connect with each other and with Jesus. Beginning March 10, our service times will be 9:15 and 11:00 a.m. Together, let's open wide our sanctuary doors and make space for those we do life with.
If you are not currently serving in a Sunday morning ministry and are willing to begin to serve as we move to two services, please email Abby Price.
